This morning when I woke it was very foggy, and seemed the perfect chance to visit the Dark Hedges with my Fujifilm X100s camera.
I bought this camera in the summer, and am gradually learning my way around it! Bit of a learning curve, but I am enjoying the challenge and the results.
For those who don’t know, the Dark Hedges are a small country road in North Antrim, Northern Ireland – about 12 miles from our cottage outside Bushmills. It used to be relatively unknown, and it was easy to visit at any time of the year and rarely encounter anyone else, except perhaps a farmer on a tractor or other local traffic.
Since being featured in Game of Thrones, it is now well and truly on the tourist trail, and often there can be a dozen or more cars parked along the picturesque road, with lots of photographers keen to capture the magic. So managing to achieve a photo without any cars or pedestrians has become much more of a challenge.
Fortunately not too many others had the same idea at 9am on a frosty foggy December morning so we only saw 3 other humans, and NO cars parked along the road!
Here are a few of my favourite images from this morning ……
